When I pulled alongside Antoinette’s Kitchen (on West Third Street in Tillamook) last Monday for my weekly salad lunch, they were closed. A hand lettered sign in the window announce that owner Antoinette Lamers, of Sand Lake, was off in Las Vegas getting married. The bridegroom himself, Joel Waits, took my order when the food cart was back in business later in the week. Congratulations to the happy couple and best wishes for every happiness.
Sandy Hanneman, of Pacific City, crafted a quilt in memory of her husband and former Pacific City Doryman’s Association (PCDA) co-Chair Paul Hanneman. She designed and pieced the treasure using Paul’s collection of Dory Days tee shirts. Denise Clausen quilted the piece. It was recently donated to the PCDA to benefit the Doryman’s Heritage Museum. The quilt is on display at the Pacific City branch of Oregon Coast Bank where the PCDA is holding a silent auction for the quilt. Bidding will continue until the organization’s August 24 meeting. Attendees will have a final chance to bid on the quilt.
